Ultiworld is hiring!

Our reporting continues to become more in-depth as we grow as a website. We are looking to continue that trend as we expand our team by hiring some new staff. And, yes, we mean hiring — these are paid positions. If you are interested in getting involved with a fast-growing, high-quality sports journalism brand, we want to hear from you.

Currently we are most interested in filling the following positions:

Video Editors

We are looking to add some new members to our video editing team to help us do more with our substantial video archive. In particular, we are looking for someone interested in identifying, cataloging, and cutting highlights for use in reels, articles, and on social media. An eye for great plays, funny moments, and anklebreakers is key.

We are also looking for additional game editing support. Get up close with the biggest games of the season as you do post-production work on game footage.

If interested, the editing positions can also include videography work at tournaments.

Instructional Writers

We are looking to expand our team of instructional writers to contribute to our Tuesday Tips column and similar features.

Do you have a knack for breaking down the nuances of an offense to make it easier for people to understand? Do you teach young players or beginners? Are you a master of mental game? We’re looking to bolster our instructional offerings with writing that can make ultimate more accessible to a wide spectrum of players.

Ideal candidates will be able to contribute articles once or twice a month and complement writing with accompanying graphics (photos, drawings, video clips, etc.) when applicable. Working with colleagues and editors to implement long-term planning and execution of instructional content will also be required.

College Tournament Reporters

We are looking for smart, capable writers/reporters who are interested in covering the College Division. Be on the ground during a weekend of competition and follow the stories, interview players, and write about the teams. This is the fundamental work we do at Ultiworld — become a part of it.

The ability to travel on (some) weekends for tournament coverage is required. All travel expenses are paid. Reporting experience preferred, but not required.

Youth Tournament Reporters

We are looking for smart, capable writers/reporters who are interested in covering the Youth Divisions (High School and/or YCC). Be on the ground during a weekend of competition and follow the stories, interview players, and write about the teams. This is the fundamental work we do at Ultiworld — become a part of it.

The ability to travel on (some) weekends for tournament coverage is required. All travel expenses are paid. Reporting experience preferred, but not required.

International Reporters

We are seeking a handful of writers from various world regions–particularly Asia, Oceania, and South America–to broaden our coverage of international ultimate. These roles will require a blend of writing, reporting, and assisting Ultiworld with determining assignments for top tournaments. Travel may or may not be required, depending on interest and role.

AUDL Writers

Are you interested in covering your local AUDL team or helping to report on the league? We are looking to expand our team of AUDL reporters in advance of the 2018 season. Whether you would like to write opinion pieces, report on games, break team news, or help out with our weekly Throwaround, we have a spot for you.
